Providence St. Joseph Health Southern California (PSJH) serves communities from the High Desert south through Los Angeles and to the Orange County coast. This vast region includes 13 of our hospitals with vibrant and diverse histories, some dating back more than a century and all dedicated to a shared tradition of compassionate service to those most in need.
Together with community-focused organizations and innovative partners, PSJH Southern California reaches beyond our hospital walls to ensure care for all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable. Community benefit investments are an important way we partner to create healthier communities, together.
